For Painted Walls.
i To one cup of gjod laundry starch, I dissolved in a little cold water, add one gallon of boiling water. Boil thirty minutes. Apply t Ii is solution to freshly painted, thoroughly dried walls with a soft brush while the starch is warm. This gives the wall a transparent coating which protects the paint by absorbing all tile grease aud dirt. To clean the walls when they have become soiled and unsightly simply wash off the starch solution with warm water. The wall will be bound to be absolutely free from streaks, which is almost impossible by any other method. This process eau be repeated several times.

“You don’t remember me, do yon?*’
“No; I don’t.”
“And I don’t remember you as Robert Larned, but I do remember you as Frank Elrod. I’m Steve Cummings.” Larned turned a shade paler. He took up a pencil on bis desk, and a tremor in bis hand was very noticeable.
“Well, what can I do for you?”
“I’m iii great need of funds.”
“Would $50 be of any service to you ?”
“Fifty thousand would.”
Larned sat looking at the man inquiringly.
“I suppose you remember the missing funds of the Arlington bank,” said the visitor.
A pained look passed over Larned’s face, but lie had evidently been prepared for the question.
“And your flight at the same time.” “I left Arlington just before the robbery was discovered.”
“And didn’t see lit to show up when it was discovered.”
“Well, go on!”
“A few years ago you came here with money and went into business. Dishonesty bas paid you better than honesty bas paid me. What do you say to a divide?”
“You mean you must be paid to remain silent.?’’
“That’s about it. I don’t like such a game, but I’m desperate,”
“And you ask $50,000? How long before you’ll want $50,666 more?”
“Give me the money, and I’ll put it out of my power to ask more.”
Larned sat thinking for awhile, then

“There’s another person interested In this matter whom I must consult.” Cummings looked at him anxiously. “This is Tuesday” — looking at a calendar on the desk before him. “Come in on Saturday afternoon at 2. The clerks all leave the office at noon on Saturday. We’ll have a better chance to talk business.”
Cummings assented and withdrew. Larned sat looking gloomily at the desk before him.
At 2 o’clock the next Saturday afternoon the door to Larned’s private office opened, and Cummings walked in. His hand had not left the doorknob when he noticed that In the room with Larned was a lady. He started. He knew' her well.
“This lady,” said Larned, “is interested with me in the matter we were discussing the other day.”
“What’s she got to do with it?” asked Cummings uneasily.
“She Is my betrothed.”
“Mr. Larned,” said the lady, “has
placed these negotiations in my hands. Ile will do whatever I desire him to do. What Is the least sum you will take to guarantee silence?”
“I’m not used to dealing with women.”
“You’ll have to deal with me or no one.”
She looked at Larned, who confirmed her words.
“I said ?50,OOO,” said Cummings.
“Iii give you $1,000.”
Cummings turned to go. The lady stopped him.
“I would advise you to take what J offer you, and I will give you five minutes to decide, lf you refuse, Iii give you nothing.”
“You do as you like. Iii put the bank in a way to recover tile loss.” “The loss is recovered for the bank One of the persons who stole the money returned Ills share. Mr. Larned has offered me my choice of a wedding present. I have chosen the remainder due. I shall turn it in to the bank.” Cummings looked at her with anxious inquiry. “I don’t like your coining into this case,” be said. “Maybe you know' more than I think you do. Maybe you’re interested more than as the betrothed of Frank Elrod.”
“I am. I am interested as the sister of the boy you made your tool when you robbed the bank.”
“It’s hard for me to enter upon my own affairs to such as you,” she continued, “but it is necessary. Mr. Elrod proposed to me just before your robbery. I declined him, and ho went away. Before newrs of the robbery reached him my brother confessed to me. I wrote Mr. Elrod asking him to make no appearance or denial till I could discover what I might do to save Ben. Mr. Elrod bas borne the burden as Mr. Larned ever since.”
The rest Is too pitiful to dwell upon. maimings, once a trusted clerk in the ank, had ruined not only himself, but a boy of nineteen. Cummings had spent his, the lion's share of the money stolen, and had been reduced by poverty and drink to attempt to blackmail the Innocent man who for love had borne the burden. Cummings left the office with the promise of a small stipend. It was thought better to keep him from harm lest he betray the boy he had led into error.
TURNER C. HOYLE.
To get a very tine thread with which to durn fine white dresser luke a piece o£ tine lawn and Unravel it, using the warp to sew with. This is also good to do fine hand sewing with, as the fetitohes made with it will never show and it will last as long as manufactured cotton. Iii making colored dresses this same plan is a good one to follow in regard to any specially dainty little piece of sewing, because you are sure of a perfect match and you also have the tiber and exact thickness of the material.
PEOPLE OF THE DAY

Grimy, perspiration stained neckbands of shirts and other garments should bo wet with cold water, well nibbed with soap and placed in the sunshine for ten minutes before washing. A few drops of kerosene rubbed Into tho more obstinate stains will hasten their removal. Do not scald or boll until stains are out, as hot water “sets” such stains beyond redemption.

Last year Prince Louis pf Savoy, for that title also belongs to Abruzzl, made extensive explorations in Africa. The prince’s expedition added greatly to the geographical knowledge of the dark continent, and he has the proud distinction of a first ascent of Mount Iiuwenzorl, in the Mountains of the Moon. He has climbed thirteen other mountains which range la height from 14,000 to 17,000 feet.

The cord Is attached to tile little finger. After slipping the arui into the sleeve of the coat the ring on the thumb Is released and the band pulled out of the armhole by means of the cord.
In the Planting Season.
8. F. Hood of the department of agriculture—wdth good prospects of success—is trying to beat the Japanese camphor tryst by raising camphor groves In Florida.
At a dinner In Huntington that celebrated an unusually fine distillation of camphor leaves Mr. Hood, the guest of honor, told a seasonable agricultural story, a story that should appeal to all suburbanites.
“One beautiful spring morning,” he began, “a suburbanite looked suspiciously over his hedge and said to his neighbor:
“ ‘Hey, what the deuce are you burying in that hole there?’
“Tile neighbor laughed—a harsh, bitter laugh.
“ 'Oh/ he said, Tm just replanting some of my nasturtium seeds, that’s all!’
“‘Nasturtium seeds?’ shouted the first man angrily. 'It looks more like one of my Buff Leghorn hens.’
" ‘Oh, that’s all right!’ the other retorted. 'The seeds are inside/ **
It is difficult to work oil delicate fabrics during the summer for those whose hands perspire freely. Dip the perspiring hands In strong alum water before beginning the work and all troubles will be obviated. Similar treatment before putting on gloves will prevent their being spoiled by perspiration.

Tare cucumbers thin, place them In cold water, add a. little salt to the water and soak for two hours, changing the water twice. Make a thick mayonnaise dressing. Cut the bread very thin, pare off the crust, spread the dressing lightly on the bread and put the cucumbers between the slices.
To Clean Woodwork.
A spot on polished wood made by placing a heated dish on it will disappear if a little salt and salad oil are poured on It and allowed to remain for an hour or so aud then rubbed off with a soft cloth.
